Team 32 worked with Textron Aviation to develop a novel electromechanical aircraft window shade system, including multiple light-filtering states for an optimal passenger experience. The design is scalable to multiple sizes of aircraft windows. The prototype includes sensors and a diagnostic system that monitors shade functionality and identifies failures in order to expedite any necessary repairs.
